Raise Green is the marketplace for impact investing in climate solutions

From solar farms on Maui, to water reuse systems in Phoenix, to geothermal power installations in Alaska, the solutions to climate change are taking shape all around us – powered by heroic entrepreneurs and innovators who are not content to wait for big energy and leaders in government to get their act together.

 

And thanks to Raise Green you don't have to be a solar finance guru or a billionaire to participate in this frontline work.

For as little as 100 dollars we enable investors to supercharge the efforts of those building a better tomorrow – and give them a chance to earn a healthy return in the process.

We have entered a critical decade in our efforts to combat the disastrous effects of climate change.

People around the world have been taking to the streets & airwaves, asking for governments, companies and their communities to take action. Citizens and municipalities are searching for solutions, and investors want to have real impact with their dollars.

Raise Green was built as a direct response to the question people are urgently asking - What action can you take to actually make a difference?
